ICT development team standards / Home


Welcome to ICT software development standards wiki. This site is under development, and i.n time will become a comprehensive set of standards and procedures.


Updating these standards

At this early point in the evolution of these standards, the whole team has access to edit the wiki. Guidelines for changes:

  • If you're improving, clarifying, adding missing information or detail, or making minor changes that don't change the substance of the standard or procedure, go ahead.
  • If you're changing a standard in a significant way, discuss it with the team first.
  • Remember, the wiki is a git repository. Feel free to branch it if you want to try to make some big changes.

In the future, we will move to a read-only repository and changes contained in pull requests will be reviewed before being merged.

Wiki features

This wiki uses the Markdown syntax. The MarkDownDemo tutorial shows how various elements are rendered. Bitbucket documentation has more information about how using a wiki.

The wiki itself is actually a git repository, which means you can clone it, edit it locally/offline, add images or any other file type, and push it back to us. It will be live immediately.

Go ahead and try:

$ git clone

Wiki pages are normal files, with the .md extension. You can edit them locally, as well as creating new ones.

Syntax highlighting

You can also highlight snippets of text (we use the excellent Pygments library).

Here's an example of some Python code:

def wiki_rocks(text):
    formatter = lambda t: "funky"+t
    return formatter(text)

You can check out the source of this page to see how that's done, and make sure to bookmark the vast library of Pygment lexers, we accept the 'short name' or the 'mimetype' of anything in there.

Have fun!
